Research looks at corruption in Kosovo customs

Tristin Kilgallon, visiting assistant professor in criminal justice, and Jordan Turner, a junior in criminal justice from Casstown, Ohio, traveled to Kosovo for two weeks to conduct field research as part of an ongoing research project aimed at identifying the root causes of corruption in Kosovo customs, and using this information to make policy recommendations to help reduce corruption.

During the trip they traveled to a number of Kosovo customs checkpoints to observe field operations. Checkpoints visited included Dheu i Bardhe, Podujeve, and Hani i Elezit. In addition to observing operations, they met with the Director General of Kosovo Customs Naim Huruglica and were granted permission to interview Kosovo customs officers.
